Description

We are looking for first-rate care workers to provide live-in care to our customers who want to continue living in their own homes. The work involves companionship, personal care and assisting customers with all aspects of daily living as required, including outings and social events.

Experience of care work is essential for live in positions as you will be working alone. Care qualifications are not essential, although you must be willing to undertake training. Usual working pattern is 1 week on (when you will live with the customer) and 1 week off, but this can vary according to the needs of the customer. Some Live In staff prefer to work different work patterns and we try to accommodate this when possible. When placed with a customer you will have your own room and be provided with all meals (for which there is no charge).

As Live In Care Assistant you will receive:

 

  • £449 - £614 per week worked

  • 28 days paid holiday per year

  • Pension

  • Any training you will need straight away to enable you to start your job and then ongoing training and updates so that you can maintain a sound knowledge base while developing new skills

  • Help to gain a nationally recognised qualification in health and social care

  • A recruitment bonus if you already have a relevant qualification

  • Regular contact with a Care Manager so that you are fully supported in your job

  • Approachable managers so that you can talk to us and feel that part of the team

People who work for us have said:

  • "Managers and office team are very supportive, you can ask for any help you may need"
  • "I'm happy to work here, it's the best place I've worked"

 

Successful applicants are required to provide an enhanced disclosure. Disclosure expense will be met by the employer with a contribution by the applicant.

Skills/Qualifications:

  • Level 2/3 Qualification in Care desirable
  • Experience of working in care
  • Ability to work alone
  • Reliable and committed
  • Ability to drive desirable but not essential
